خمسة مليارات نسمة قد يواجهون نقصاً في المياه بحلول 2050

October 6, 2021 - حذرت المنظمة العالمية للأرصاد الجوية التابعة للأمم المتحدة من أن أكثر من خمسة مليارات شخص قد لا يتمكنون من الحصول على المياه بشكل كافٍ بحلول العام 2050.

Already in 2018, 3.6 billion people had inadequate access to water for at least one month per year, according to a new report from the UN’s World Meteorological Organisation.

The WMO said that over the last 20 years, the levels of water stored on land – on the surface, in the subsurface, in snow and ice – had dropped at a rate of one centimetre per year.

The agency said there were major ramifications for water security, as only 0.5 percent of water on Earth is useable and available fresh water.
